. >> talk to us about ronald reagan's central american policy. >> he sent it back about 20 years. he took the cold war to a new level. he almost took it to the edge of world war again. he said constantly that the soviet union was the head of the united states in every military capacity. we were always ahead. a a but we were always the underdog in our own mind. central america, in regin's mine, becomes the bulwarks of communism. -- in ronald reagan's mind, becomes the bulwark of communism. they are going to come up. he is worried about what mollah, honduras, going read. central american molla countries going read. i saw soldiers there the reminded me of my own experience in vietnam, young, walking around, lost, white skin and all of that. i said do you remember vietnam? they said we do not want to talk about it. there were death squads, terror, the right wing parties of central america took they're not from reagan and karen -- nod from the reagan and killed dozens of people. out of the economics of ronald reagan, the south americans were decimated. the international monetary fund and world
they want to keep weapons to kill people, the majority of americans support a weapons ban. ronald reagan and gerald ford both supported the weapons ban. why is an assault weapons ban such a red line for the nra? >> well, let me just say that if you are part of this vigilante culture which is even the minority of the nra the way you see the world i use the phrase as an arms race. means if the other guys has an assault weapon, you need a big bigger assault weapon. there is no reasonable accommodation to believe that someone with a reasonable accommodation disarms them theory. >> john: what do you say michael. >> i mean, there is no reason here right? there is no rationality here. there is an emotional response to a president they don't trust. a president they think wants to take away their guns. and will never believe otherwise. even if they just have hunting shotguns around the house. and they have been persuaded completely of the slippery slope argument, and just as the republican party has moved to the right since 1994 on a whole range of things, they've moved to the right on guns, too.
of the house, who didn't like ronald reagan's politics and disagreed with everything that ronald reagan stood for and went to the russians to try to get him thrown out the office, but my father reached out to at this point o'neill brought him to the white house to have dinner and he went there, and my father needed to have him carry the water on the tax relief of 1981, signed august 13th at the ranch. tip o'neill went up there for dinner and told the staff, i'm carrying the legislation. the staff went what? what did the president promise you or say he would do for you. nothing, he didn't speak about taxes all night long. what did he talk about? talked about the greatness and goodness of america and he and i working together can make it for people better. before i knew it, drinking with the president and telling irish story, eating dinner and on board with the tax cut and that's the way that ronald reagan did it, that's not the way that barack obama does it. >> megyn: listen, a lot of house republicans who don't like president obama and president obama said, i invite these guys to the white ho
and served under president bush 41 and as ronald reagan me a incendiary comments about the republican party on one of the sunday shows yesterday. >> there is also a dark, a dark intolerance by some in the party. what do i mean by that? i mean they still sort of look down on minorities. how can i evidence that? i see the former governor saying that the president is shucking and jiving that is a racial slave term. >> andrea: today on my radio show, senator rubio had this to say in response --" i disagree with general powell's assessment of the republican party. they placed two hispanics in the u.s. senate and we now have an african-american senator." so, bob, baseless criticism from powell? >> bob: not at all. the way you introduce this thing you said he said the republican party. that's not what he said. he said a small bane in the republican party that looks down on minorities. i believe that's true. i believe when you had kreito in the house he looked down to hispanics. whoever made the shuck and jive, that was that's racial comment. i don't believe that the republican party is all racist
powell in their administrations and they have never shown him anything but opportunity. ronald reagan made him national security advisor president bush 41 made him chairman of joints chief of staff and president bush 43 made him secretary of state. i don't think you can prove deep vein of intolerance by his personal experience. the comments he took frwere a couple of stray comments from this past presidential season one of them by sarah palin is not a central figure in republican party politics at the moment and wasn't then. she is out of lek tive office. she is more or less on the hisi lines she has a following to be sure then he spoke of the comment president obama was lazy. that need not be considered a racial comment. the president was known not to enjoy preparing for the debate. his aids were fearful he didn't do so intentionally enough for that first debate. i think the case that he makes is weak and it is an odd thing for a man who declares himself to be a republican and has done so well for republicans to say. >> how the media covered al gore al-jazeera. it is a scandal. the f
health issue, because behind many of the shooters, from ronald reagan's would-be assassin all the way through what happened, the tragedy in connecticut 30 days ago has been someone with some mental illness and derangement. so i think we have to have, for instance, a very robust discussion. i anticipate, or i'm looking forward to seeing the task force suggests, a discussion for instance, rachel on whether the category of probative people who have been adjudicated as mentally ill, that's what the law says, essentially, they're prohibited, whether or not that should be broadened. for instance, should a person who has a diagnosis from a psychiatrist as being a paranoid schizophrenic be able to go into walmart tomorrow morning and buy a weapon? under the current law, without having been adjudicate as mentally ill in a court of law, under federal law, they would be able to do that. we have to have a serious discussion whether or not that category needs to be expanded. and what you're going to do is bring in a whole bunch of people who have very interested on that. you're going to have nra i
president in terms of raising it, the winner is ronald reagan at 17 times. that might shock people who like to see him as the paragon of responsible spending. >> we'll start with the deficit, shrinking more rapidly than at any time since the end of the korean war. in the end of december, we had a deficit for the month of $260 million, not $260 billion, $260 million. which in washington is almost the budget. that's the smallest monthly deficit in five years. some of that is artificial. people pulling transactions forward because they were afraid of higher tax rates in 2013. but for the first three months of 2013, we have a rapidly shrinking fiscal 2013, we have a rapidly shrinking deficit. so we are in a way chasing a vanishing problem. >> which is interesting, and that would allow for some things that are dirty and things that are not so dirty, would completely perhaps get rid of this problem after a while. do you think we're headed for a full stalemate? >> it's such a shame. i think david is right because we have low debt service right now. we're paying less interest on our debt than we ha
of person. >> sean: but he worked for ronald reagan-- >> and why when you try to run on these national offices you get defeated. moreover. >> sean: hang on a second. >> moreover, president obama got 39% of the white vote. it wasn't that he just won because of minorities. >> sean: michael, the democratic party, it was joe biden that said we're going to put you all back in chains. it was al gore that said republicans don't want to count black people in the census before the predomina predominantly black audience and the james byrd ad. if he wanted to be equally as critical, i can't get a direct answer. who are the people, name names and identify what they said and if in fact they are what owe sa he says they are, racism is repugnant. >> it is, and a good friend of ours said if everything is racism, nothing is racism and that's the most unfortunate thing of that phenomenon. i call it it the sharptonization of american politics where you have people that use the race card as a political weapon of mass destruction. and look it, there 's an intolerance in politics, there's an intolerance wit
. >>> in 1981 ronald reagan took the oath of office in an economic turndown of course and called for an era of national renewal and he had this message for the role of government in american life and the country's new conservative tide. >> in this present crisis, government is not the solution to our problem. government is the problem. [ applause ] >> wow. later on in the inaugural luncheon, president reagan announced after four days in captivity the 52 americans held hostage in iran were on their way home. we'll be right back. [ male announcer ] you are a business pro. executor of efficiency. you can spot an amateur from a mile away... while going shoeless and metal-free in seconds. and you...rent from national. because only national lets you choose any car in the aisle...and go. you can even take a full-size or above, and still pay the mid-size price. now this...will work. [ male announcer ] just like you, business pro. just like you. go national. go like a pro. how did i know? well, i didn't really. see, i figured low testosterone would decrease my sex drive... but when i started losing
to save the campaign baker of course was chief of stat for ronald reagan before becoming treasury secretary, but that's how he fits into the specific wording of this question. we'll be right back. >>> he did not come clean in the way i expected. i felt he answered the questions in a way that he was ready. i didn't get all the questions asked, but i think the most important questions and answers that people around the world have been waiting to hear were answered, and certainly addressed -- i can only say i was satisfied by the answers. >>> let's bring back the gaggle. number one, lance armstrong was always wanting to dabble in politics. we did a forum with him in 2007 with the livestrong foundation. i remember we had this debate, hey, you know, who are we doing this with? lance or the foundation? the foundation we were more comfortable with than lance, because you never knew when this day was going to come. >> i think this story has gotten so many traction because he was seen as one of the good guys. >> right. the austin guy. >> loved by everyone there, and lance armstrong, in spo
conservatives were chained to reality, whether they liked it or not. he defended ronald reagan when right wingers attacked him to california and said what would you like him to do, chain himself to the state capitolened read the liberty documents? at the end of the day, it's about winning. is the republican party more likely to win swing voters over if it's embracing colin powell or constantly attacking him. if they could pull moderates like him back and expand the tent. >> you have even seen now with mark rubio, what he's saying around immigration, some of them are beginning to recognize you're not going to be able to be a governing party and get back the white house without having an immigration strategy that allows latinos to be incorporated in the political situati system and have a path to citizenship and paul ryan agreed. some of them are beginning to realize political reality and facts. john boehner, one of the problems, he inflammatounfortun not seem to have the leadership skills to lead instead of following the tea party in his caucus. >> i would disagree. i'm not here to defend
in spending cuts. >> what about their pay saint ronald reagan? it was double digits. so bottom line is -- >> bill: i think obama's right. saying no, no, no, no. this is not something. we do not debate as he said yesterday, several times, we don't debate whether or not we're going to pay our bills. we're not a deadbeat nation. >> bill, for the listeners who may not know this and i'm sure many people do but for those who may not know, when we raise the debt ceiling we're not authorizing future spending. >> bill: good point. >> we're just paying the bills we've already acquired. we've already passed authorization bills and appropriation bills and the president signed the bill. we spent the money. this is just saying we're going to pay. okay. so like why wouldn't we want to do that? right? and so it is really sort of a ridiculous thing. i'm going to tell you, the progressive caucus, we're not against cuts. we have cuts that we think we'll go for. like -- >> bill: you've already done a lot of cuts. >> we've done $1.7 trillion in cuts. what if we did close some of the loopholes for the fo
